Last week I shared:

R.E.M. “Turn You Inside Out”

Today’s share:

Alice in Chains

“Don’t Follow” and “No Excuses”

“No Excuses”

Lyrics:

It’s alright
There comes a time
Got no patience to search
For peace of mind
Layin’ low
Want to take it slow
No more hiding or
Disguising truths I’ve sold

Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know

It’s okay
Had a bad day
Hands are bruised from
Breaking rocks all day
Drained and blue
I bleed for you
You think it’s funny, well
You’re drowning in it too

Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know

Yeah, it’s fine
We’ll walk down the line
Leave our rain, a cold
Trade for warm sunshine
You my friend
I will defend
And if we change, well I
Love you anyway

Everyday it’s something
Hits me all so cold
Find me sittin’ by myself
No excuses, then I know


These come from one of my favorite albums:

Jar Of Flies

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE Alice in Chains! Brings back some wonderful and poignant memories of my dear and adored first love, who sadly passed away a couple of months ago. He was
    one hell of a terrific musician himself and turned me onto Alice in Chains, as well as Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden. Such a heartbreaking loss. Thank you for this post, Jen. 🙂

    1. Vanessa, how incredibly sad. I’m so sorry to hear that. I hope you’re doing okay.

      AIC brings back some strong memories for me and not all good ones. Like Michael said though, what an amazing era. It’s one I’m so appreciative to have experienced. Take care, friend. Thinking of you. ❤

      1. It really was a seminal time in my life, for you too, it seems. I am doing all right, but having lost my mom just a few months back and then losing another person I loved so much and who had such an influence in my life has been difficult. I love your music posts as always, and I appreciate your kindness. 🙂
